Hurray! After 3 weeks of tiresome training, I finally passed my Muay Thai grading! It was easy than what I’ve expected as the training we went through was a killer. We were graded by Mick and he’s the founder of Wicker Camp (the Gym’s name). He doesn’t look like a Thai Fighter at all. I guess he has retired. He said sometimes people mistaken him for the caretaker.
We had to go through loads of paper work before we grade namely fill in details for our license (which also includes details about your level of fitness etc). The total for the entire grading costs 25quid.
We started off with a 4 minutes fitness test. We had to run up and down the gym coupled with a few other exercises ie right skips, run on 4s. And then some stretching exercise followed by shadow boxing, pad work and lastly gym test (30 seconds of push-ups, sit-ups, squats and burpies respectively). A minute rest is given on each session and the whole session lasted 45 minutes.
Mick congratulated us after the grading and said that the official results will be out on Wednesday. Hurray! After 2 years of Muay Thai training, I finally got through stage one!
Frederick made prawn noodles for dinner today. It took him few hours to complete it but it was well worth it. It’s fucking god damn fucking good!! Wen Dee said it’s so good that it gives her an orgasm 😀
– 11:20PMMuay Thai grading in 2 hours. I’ve been training for it for 3 weeks. Wish me luck.
